02 Dec 2021 In our previous efforts to compile this record we overlooked a photo of the sighting was uploaded in an article separate from the bird report (see links). The previous background descriptions have hence been removed and the record has been changed from "Unverifiable" to "Verifiable". The background previously read: "From the Nature Society (Singapore) Bird Group report: "On the 2nd we have the third sighting of the Buff-rumped Woodpecker, Meiglyptes tristis, when Lim Kim Keang videoed one at Bidadari Cemetery. ". The video is not available anywhere as of writing (29 August 2021). Given that a video was taken and seen by multiple, it is likely that the record can be trusted since this is quite an unmistakable species.".
